Verdict

SELFARA is hard to oppose. She scored with plenty in hand at Nottingham last week and can defy a penalty if in the same mood today. Irish Boy went close at Leicester recently and should be winning before long off his current mark but Love You Louis looks in need of some respite from the handicapper. It was soft ground when The Strig won at Brighton last month and he's equipped with first-time blinkers while Berberana may do better dropping down a grade.
